Graduate School Admissions January 29, 2011

Posted by Jason in Uncategorized.

Thanks to the good folks at College Confidential, we have here a fascinating trove of admissions statistics. The best information is from Duke, though we also have some data from Princeton.

Some numbers:

Duke Statistics Department- 7% acceptance rate


589 Verbal GRE

798 Quantitative GRE

3.8 Undergraduate GPA

74% complete their PhDs, and the median time to completion is 4.7 years. Of the 52 graduates between 2000 and 2010, 23 (about 44%) are in tenure-track positions.


On the other hand, for the East Asian Studies Master’s Program, 71% were accepted, 9% decided to enroll, and we have average GRE scores of 601V/651Q, and an average undergraduate GPA of 3.6.
